great job again..this was my fifth (?) time to St. Martin and I haven't felt the need to look for other places. Everything was neat and clean and I never had to ask for anything. La Plantation is a high-quality, well-oiled machine...a few comments about the French side of the island in general though...St. Martin calls itself "the friendly island".... More

Just returned from a great 8 night stay here - we had a huge 'room' which was subdivided into a living area, kitchen area and separate bedroom and bathroom. Lots of character and great views from our porch area. Our two kids had plenty of space on a sofa bed and an extra camp bed that they put in the... More

If you're looking for ritzy and glamorous, go somewhere else! This hotel was charming and quaint, and the perfect place for a romantic getaway. I had to convince my wife that it was worth staying a 5 minute walk from the beach, as she wanted to stay right on the water, but since it is built on a hill, you... More

The hotel rooms were more like free standing villas. I was surprised by how big the room was, it was more like an apartment. There was a kitchen, a living area, and a terrace for sitting. The WIFI was very weak at my room, which was very close to the office. That was my only gripe. The best part is... More

Hotel reception manager, Lisette, was absolutely wonderful and exceeded our expectations. We had a few minor problems with electrical service outages, but she was adept at handling our concerns. The hotel was a little difficult to find at first-- better signage would certainly help. The hotel is built into side of mountainous terrain, so accommodations are on several levels and... More

Great location just off Orient beach, nestled on a hill overlooking the bay in a neighbourhood of villa's. Nice to be able to walk to the beach and retire to your own patio surrounded by lush gardens and panoramic views in a quiet setting. Our room had a full size fridge and kitchen, huge bathroom and shower to match.Hotel stay... More

We have stayed at his little piece of paradise for 10 summer now. It is a charming small hotel with a beautiful view Orient Bay. The staff is outstanding, always helpful and like a family. The rooms are well maintained and clean. Lush gardens surround each villa where you will see cute little humming birds. You are within walking distance... More

The lovely D and I spent 16 days on St. Martin, and inhabitants of Hotel La Plantation (HLP). It was our fourth stay at La Plantation. Two words come to mind........charming, as in the overall look and ambience of the hotel, and location, as in juxtaposition to Orient Village and the sea. Nestled in the hills overlooking Orient Bay, the... More

Just came back from a six night stay at the plantation and had a nice relaxing stay in a quiet, well manicured resort in orient beach. Beautiful rooms..2 minute walk to orient beach..gated resort that is as safe as can be with 24 hour security. The front desk staff and manager are always available and eager to please. The gardeners... More
